Subhashi’s journey to game development started on a developing island, where she lived unsure of her future ambitions. She sought multiple avenues and finally settled into the Game Development industry after completing two years of schooling, resulting in a self-proclaimed “accidental” Computer Science degree. After completing her degree, she was having trouble finding a career and turned to her passion for game development. She published her own game, which provided her with an opportunity to work for a game studio in Sri Lanka. While she doesn’t have a traditional programming background, she was able to teach herself 3D modeling and eventually co-founded the first Unity User Group in Sri Lanka and hosted the first-ever Global Game Jam in Sri Lanka.
